Heinzs:

On War

The brave young men
with hearts of eagles
go where sent
while at home
hawks and doves
fight in great halls
but shed no blood.

The brave young men
enter the cock ring
to die or live another day
while at home
elected ostriches rule
and no one wins
but the vulture and crow.

... and his words purge up and outward,
expelled and onward through desert dust swallowed,
sands he says that gorge on simple sensibilities.
And, now he spits fragments, grit, extended vowels and elongated syllables
over cracked lips. Their sounds fall
piling round his boots…
